Didn't have time to go to AutoZone, had to watch my son this evening. He's at that age(3) where he doesn't do too well in public.

That's the only way I can think of to get the code. I need to get a tuner so I can do it myself.

I bought one of these on eBay for about $150:

It's very nice. Has onboard text decoding and is flash upgradeable (free) via internet. Great gadget. Specs here:

This is the display. The circles at the top are the I/M monitors (emission and diagnostic monitors). This is what the inspection people look for. A missing circle is a monitor that your vehicle doesn't have, an open circle is one that is incomplete, and a filled circle is one that has completed. A blinking circle means a monitor can't run because of a problem with the engine or control system.
